ronnel (Ectoral, Korlan) Proposed Tolerance Revocation 12/93

   December 22, 1993
  SUBJECT:  Reregistration Notification
       TO:  Users of the RNN
     FROM:  Dr. Nancy N. Ragsdale
            Director, NAPIAP
  Enclosed is a latest notice of the Reregistration Notification Network 
  (RNN) dated December 22, 1993.  This issue of the RNN deals with several 
  residue tolerance and action level revocations, pesticide use 
  cancellations, commodity tolerance definitions, and other actions.  Of 
  special note is the final decision by the EPA Statospheric Protection 
  Division to restrict the production and importation of methyl bromide.  
  The USDA has recently published the proceedings from a USDA Workshop on 
  alternatives to methyl bromide held from June 29 to July 1, 1993, in 
  Arlington, Virginia.  Titled "Alternatives to Methyl Bromide: Assessment
  of Research Needs and Priorities", it contains specific crop and commodity 
  recommendations on the alternatives to methyl bromide for postharvest 
  commodity treatment, quarantine treatment and soil fumigation.  Suggestions 
  are also made concerning research needs and priorities.  If you would like

The intent of this network is to inform interested parties of recent or
impending pesticide use cancellations, tolerance revocations and other items
of agricultural interest.  To the best of our knowledge, the uses mentioned
here, unless otherwise indicated, will not appear on any label registered by
the USEPA following the uses expected cancellation.  We recommend that you
express any concerns or questions you have to the contact mentioned below or
your NAPIAP State Liaison Representative.  If you wish to contact us at USDA,
our phone number is (301) 504-8846, and our fax number is (301) 504-8063.

  ronnel (Korlan,    The USEPA has proposed the revocation of all tolerances
   Trolene)          for residues of ronnel.  The final product containing
                     this insecticide was canceled in 1991.  There is no
                     anticipation of a residue problem.  Consequently, no
                     action levels will be recommended to replace the revoked
                     tolerances.  Ronnel presently has tolerances on BANANAS,
                     CATTLE, EGGS, GOATS, HOGS, MILK, POULTRY and SHEEP.
                     Written comments, identified by OPP-300310, should be
                     sent to the Public Response Section of EPA.
